Pie Five Pizza Co. to open five more area restaurants by mid-2015

Pie Five Pizza Co. is in expansion mode with five more area restaurants planned to open by next summer — in Leawood, Mission, Overland Park, Westport and Topeka. The first Pie Five opened in Fort Worth in 2011, combining handmade pizzas with fresh ingredients and the latest high-speed baking techniques. Customers can select from a variety of choices in crust, sauce, cheese, greens, meats and vegetables. The Pie Five name comes from the five minutes it takes to make the custom or specialty pizzas.
